Award-winning theatre company, Summer Stock Austin, now in its 13th season, hosts Theatre-For-All Day Camp for 5 – 12-year-old theatre lovers! This is a great opportunity for kids to meet and learn from actual cast members from the new musical A Shoe Story, written by the Biscuit Brothers’ Allen Robertson and Damon Brown. This camp brings learning, theatre, and fun all together in one day!
After enjoying a full performance of A Shoe Story, a modern retelling of the timeless tale “The Elves & The Shoemaker,” the campers enjoy a backstage tour of the set and a “talkback.” They are able to explore the set and ask questions from the performing cast members!
Creative activities that connect back to the musical theatre performance are waiting for them in the next room. They can sit back and relax and get to know each other and the cast members on a closer level.
Campers also enjoy theatre warm-ups and games as well as an improvisational workshop. This gears them up to learn their very own original song with choreography straight from the show! A Great way to loosen up and have fun.
“It was really enlightening to see how excited the kids were to do something for the show. You could tell it had affected them positively and would be with them for a long time,” says Lena Owens, a cast member from last year’s Summer Stock season.
Theatre-For-All Day Camp provides kids with an experience that cannot be beat! Camps are August 3rd, 4th and 8th, 10:30am – 3pm for ages 5 – 8, and 1030:am – 4pm for ages 9 – 12. This learning experience provides kids with a special day of theatre full of song, dance, and fun!
